as it passed through the caribbean. with that in mind, new jersey governor chris christie issued a blunt warning to anyone thinking of riding out the storm. >> this is not a time to be a show-off. this is not a time to be stupid. this is a time to try to save yourself and your family. everybody thinks they're smarter than we are here. maybe they are. but not about this. >> ifill: in new york city officials shut down all transit services and ordered nearly 400,000 people to evacuate low-lying areas. hours before sandy hit, high water blew on to the board walk in battery park at the southern tip of manhattan. high winds also left a construction crane dangling from the top of a 55-story building. even the stock market closed due to weather for the first time in nearly 30 years. it will remain closed tomorrow. the nation's capital followed suit, shutting down public transportation, schools, and federal offices. president obama canceled a campaign rally in florida and flew back to washington, appearing early this afternoon to promise federal help. >> i'm extraordinarily grateful for the coope
about 30 miles west of new york city. new jersey governor chris christie repeatedly warned residents about the potential dangers earlier. >> i'm very disappointed in the fact that some decided to disregard my instruction, in fact my order. and i'm concerned that it might lead to the loss of life. >> also, reports of homes flooded under several feet of water and several rescues have been under way including those stranded under cars while they were trying to escape. >> i'm scared to death. so many people are going to die today. >> authorities are working to evacuate hundreds of people from west atlantic city, where waters are dangerously high as well. so we've been talking quite a bit about new york city. that's the -- of course the highest population area that's been affected by this storm. and we want to give you a visual of the problem facing some city commuters in just a few hours. there will be no commute really. i look at the bridges and the tunnels that link manhattan to the outer boroughs. many are closed across the city. few details are available at this time about any mornin
of the century. matt? >> al roquener point pleasant beach, new jersey. al, thank you very much. chris christie is the governor of that state of new jersey. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you guys took a direct hit, and i know you'll probably not know the extent of the damage until daylight and you get to see the areas by ground and by air, but based on the reports you've been getting overnight, what's the state of your state? >> it's a major disaster, matt. we have over 2.4 million people without power across the state. we've had flooding in the raritan bay and newark area. the city of newark is 95% without power due to substation flooding. all that came from the tidal surge that came up from the storm through raritan bay and newark bay, the same thing you see affecting new york city, and we have a battered, battered new jersey shore that i hope to tour a little bit later on today, but i think the losses are going to be almost incalculable. >> yeah. i was watching reports all afternoon and evening, governor, from long branch and point pleasant beach and atlantic city, and do yo
away, whether or not chris christie decides to run for re-election or plot a potential president campaign. i think we'll also see marco rubio make movement in that direction, more republicaning coming off the bench and wanting to make more noise. >> i want to pick up with where you left off with immigration. something the president said to the "des moines register" of the and then on the record, it peeked my interest because he said if he's re-elected immigration reform is going to be the number one priority. that's a big deal. why not run on that in places, especially places like colorado, like florida. why not talk about immigration reform on the campaign trail? >> i think it's a great point. it absolutely is a critical issue, not just to hispanics, but many others. the obama campaign will make the case they've been making that argument pretty vociferously, specifically in florida where you are right now. one thing to think about here, and this goes to the previous question about what the republican party looks like after the election is what kind of congress is president obama
